Common Reasons for Boiler Service
Oliver recommends routine boiler service to keep your system operating efficiently and maximize its lifespan. There are also some boiler issues to watch for. An inaccurate thermostat, no heat or a pilot light that you cannot relight are all clear problems. But you should also look for drips, leaks and low pressure, listen for gurgling, banging or rumbling noises.
We Service Several Types of Boilers
Boilers rely on water or steam to operate and can be powered by gas, oil, or propane. Each type of fuel has its benefits and which you choose depends on what’s available to you and what your needs are. The two most common boilers use steam or hot water to heat your home. Regardless of your energy source and type of boiler, we’re here to help. Contact us now for an estimate.
Steam boilers use a heat exchanger to convert water into steam. They employ a combination of pressure and gravity to move that steam through piping and into radiators. The steam eventually cools and condenses into water, and that water is cycled back to the boiler to be reheated.
Hot Water Boilers
Hot water boilers use a heat exchanger as well but only to heat the water rather than convert it into steam. These systems employ a combination of pressure, volume and temperature to move that hot water through piping and into radiators. Once cooled, the water is cycled back to be reheated.
Condensing Hot Water Boilers
Traditional boilers allow carbon dioxide and steam to escape through a flue. Condensing boilers instead have those gases pass through a second heat exchanger that is used to preheat returning condensation. This approach is more energy efficient.
Natural Gas Boilers
Both steam and hot water boilers and condensing and noncondensing boilers can be fueled by natural gas and also propane. These boilers are typically regulated via a temperature gauge and a thermocouple to minimize fuel consumption, and the gas is used to maintain a lit pilot light.
Oil boilers, which are also known as oil-fired boilers, are hot water boilers fueled by oil. Oil boilers are not as efficient as gas boilers. They can be particularly inefficient as they age. They are also not environmentally friendly but are still used in some areas with limited access to natural gas.
Routine Maintenance on Your Boiler Will Ensure Safe Operation
Oliver recommends you receive annual boiler maintenance. In fact, we advise scheduling it in advance of the heating season so that your local HVAC technician is the first one to start your boiler. This preventative maintenance includes inspection, cleaning and a tune-up. Our technician will be able to identify any wear before it manifests into potentially a serious and expensive problem. Regular boiler service will keep your energy costs lower. It will help to maximize the lifespan of your boiler, and it will also give you peace of mind that the boiler is operating in a safe manner.
Other Heating Systems We Service
Boiler service is not the only heating service that we provide to the Delaware Valley area and the Jersey Shore. Our HVAC company installs, replaces, services and repairs all manner of heating equipment used in this region. This includes furnaces, heat pumps, hybrid heating systems and ductless mini-splits.
Heat pumps can both heat and cool a home, and they are among the most energy-efficient options on the market. All heat pumps run on electricity and operate by transferring heat energy rather than generating heat. Air-source heat pumps are the most prevalent type and exchange energy from the air. Ground-source heat pumps—also known as geothermal heat pumps—are more efficient and exchange energy from the ground.
Central furnace systems are still the most popular heating solution for homes in our service area. These systems are very efficient and can maintain that efficiency throughout their lifespan with regular service. Furnaces use a heat exchanger to warm air. A fan then blows that warmed air into ductwork that distributes it throughout your home, and the air enters the living spaces through vents.
